About the Symposium

Bridging the Spectrum: A Symposium on Scholarship and Practice in Library and Information Science, offers a knowledge-sharing forum and meeting place for practitioners, students, and faculty in Library and Information Sciences and Services. Presentations are selected to showcase innovative practices, projects, and research activities in a variety of library, archives, or information services activities. Because students, faculty, and practitioners all share their work, the Symposium encompasses many different aspects and points of view on Library and Information Professional work. The program’s goal is to foster unexpected connections across the spectrum of the information professions.

However, spaces are limited and regular restrictions will be enforced in other university parking lots. See the campus map at http://www.cua.edu/res/docs/cuamap.pdf .
